Course Description

Emphasis in this course is placed on understanding the underlying assumptions of quantitative models and on gaining an intuitive understanding of the most common modeling procedures. The types of models covered will be those frequently used in the analysis of health and environmental data, for applications such as analysis of survey research, quantitative risk assessment, and pharmacokinetics. Methods to be studied include ordinary least squares, the method of maximum likelihood, Monte Carlo methods, systems of ordinary difference equations, and basic simulation techniques. There will be a diverse set of readings, frequent computer exercises to be worked either individually or in groups, and a final project.
